The Algorithm Type class lists the encryption functions supported by TDGSS.

The following table describes the supported algorithm functions:

Algorithm Type Function
Confidentiality Encrypts transmitted data to insure confidentiality.
Integrity Checks a message to ensure that none of the data was changed or lost.
Key Exchange Secure exchange of encryption keys between initiator and acceptor.

This list of supported algorithm functional types only changes if you install a new release of TDGSS that supports a different set of functional types.

Supported encryption functions appear in the AlgorithmType section of TdgssLibraryConfigFile.xml in the following default xml form:

           <AlgorithmType>
              Confidentiality
              Integrity
              KeyExchange
           </AlgorithmType>
